    https://www.nhl.com/news/philadelphi...ew/c-293748010

    by Derek Van Diest

    FLYERS (9-11-7) at OILERS (11-14-2)

    9:30 p.m. ET; SN1, NBCSP, NHL.TV



    The Game


    The Philadelphia Flyers will attempt to win consecutive games for the second time this season when they play the Edmonton Oilers at Rogers Place on Wednesday.

    The Flyers ended a 10-game losing streak Monday with a 5-2 win at the Calgary Flames. The losing streak (0-5-5) tied the longest in Flyers' history. Philadelphia is playing the second of a three-game Western Canada road trip.

    The Oilers are 4-2-0 in their past six games after going 1-4-1 in their previous six. Center Connor McDavid will play after missing practice Monday with an illness.



    Players to watch

    Oilers right wing Jesse Puljujarvi had two goals in a 7-5 win against the Calgary Flames on Saturday. Puljujarvi, selected No. 4 by Edmonton in the 2016 NHL Draft, was recalled from Bakersfield of the American Hockey League on Nov. 10.

    Flyers right wing Jacob Voracek has 12 points (three goals, nine assists) in his past nine games. Voracek had three assists against Calgary.



    They said it

    "It was amazing, it was like Christmas came early. It was a good feeling. It's been a tough stretch, it had been a long time, but on the other hand, we knew we had to break it eventually."-- Flyers right wing Jacob Voracek on ending a 10-game losing streak

    "We're finding a way to produce 5-on-5, which is important. Our power play hasn't been very good, everyone knows that, and once we can find a way to get that producing, it'll really help." -- Oilers center Connor McDavid on Edmonton scoring 11 goals in its past two games



    Flyers projected lineup

    Claude Giroux -- Sean Couturier -- Wayne Simmonds

    Michael Raffl -- Valtteri Filppula -- Jakub Voracek

    Jordan Weal -- Nolan Patrick -- Travis Konecny

    Taylor Leier -- Scott Laughton -- Dale Weise

    Ivan Provorov -- Andrew MacDonald

    Shayne Gostisbehere -- Robert Hagg

    Travis Sanheim -- Mark Alt

    Brian Elliott

    Alex Lyon

    Scratched: TJ Brennan, Jori Lehtera

    Injured: Brandon Manning (upper body), Michal Neuvirth (lower body)

    Suspended: Radko Gudas



    Oilers projected lineup

    Milan Lucic -- Connor McDavid -- Jesse Puljujarvi

    Patrick Maroon -- Ryan Nugent-Hopkins -- Michael Cammalleri

    Drake Caggiula -- Leon Draisaitl -- Ryan Strome

    Jujhar Khaira -- Mark Letestu -- Zack Kassian

    Darnell Nurse -- Kris Russell

    Oscar Klefbom -- Matt Benning

    Yohann Auvitu -- Eric Gryba

    Laurent Brossoit

    Nick Ellis

    Scratched: Brandon Davidson, Nathan Walker , Anton Slepyshev

    Injured: Andrej Sekera (knee), Cam Talbot (undisclosed), Adam Larsson (upper body)



    Status report

    The Flyers placed Neuvirth and Manning on injured reserve. Neuvirth is expected to be out a week and Manning is likely to miss 3-4 weeks. Philadelphia recalled Brennan and Lyon from Lehigh Valley of the AHL … Davidson, who was claimed off waivers by Edmonton from the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday, will not play.



    Stat pack

    Giroux has seven points (two goals, five assists) in his past seven games … Letestu has two goals and three assists during a three-game point streak.
